I am very proud of him. But it is kind ruined when another being crashed into it militia style on the apology post, on the commentary below.
Dear Scott, it takes great pride to appologise and it is one of the traits that
should be trully instilled in God’s children. (a) I do agree with you
all the way about the questions of the existence of homosexuality and i strongly
oppose concerning the notion that it is ok to appoint a gay pastor to lead the
christians and homosexuality in life. Christ is the head of the Church
and and He is no gay. (b)So who gives the particular pastor and other so
called gay pastors the right to be one , the head of a church when he doesn t
even follow the teaching of the Bible itself but deliberately creating his own
doctrines to suit his need . Then Our worship to God is in vain if we
follow human doctrines instead of our Lord Jesus’ teachings (cf. 2 Jn 9; Gal
1:8-9; Jn 4:24). (c)I’m happy to read your personal attacks on Yuki’s
posts and questions and i cant even find any forms of arrogance in it as all
those statements are coming from your personal opinion based on the true
teaching of Bible. Yuki ,on the otherhand is more inclined to human
interpretations than using the bible to look for answers. (d)She
believes in God and a christian herself, unfortunately is still doubtful of what
is propagated by Jesus and having tunnel visions in her understanding between
the old and the new tastement.It is not enough just to call Jesus our
Lord. We must do the will of the Father. If we do not obey Jesus’ teachings, we
are as foolish as a man who builds a house without a solid foundation.
(e)So the gay should should be blame for being what they are but they
are wrong in the eyes of God and should be exposed to the teaching of Bible not
to have another church for gays!!!! Well , the true answer for the
above question is already stated in the Bible, not wikipedia, not from the
journals or whatsoever, So the question of of our salvation is as stated in Mat
24 : 13.
The Word for believers are supposed to be the lamp unto the feet and the light unto the path. But for people like this Highlander, it is a source of ammunition of intolerance and prejudice.
a) Homosexuals exist. Highlander says no. Wow. But I agree with most of the LGTs it would have been better if Rev Ou Yang, never place his sexuality out on his ordaination. It is just amazing that people do not even appreciate such honesty on sexuality, but instead calls it a lie.
b) I wonder what is the proof of 'creation of his (Ou Yang) own doctrines.' He is only gay for goodness sake. Heck, at least Ou Yang is out and honest. I would not like to attend a church headed by a highlander who do not even have a profile, and shoots then hides for the fun of it.
c) Justifying attacks on a person, then flaming, then worshipping the Bible instead of Christ. Is this really a Christian?
d) I mentioned before sometimes bigotry blinds a person's eyes in the face of dialogue. Any reader of my blog would already have this fact hammered: I am not a Christian anymore. And is it tunnel visions, when every Christian knows the difference between the war God of the Old Testament and the God of Love in the New Testament? Highlander worships a book again.
e) Now Highlander worships his own bigotry.
I think you all would know there are other comments in regards to Ou Yang, some even nastier ones like this: http://politics101malaysia.blogsome.com/2007/08/10/pastor-happy-with-new-calling/. Observe comment 12. Also another one who comes and shoots and do not dare to show himself who he or she is. And another evidence that the bigotry is still discriminative between gays and lesbians. I am already over annoyed to reply to such loathsome show of antigay lies and hate mongering. But it is these mentalities that is bringing a more dangerous side out from anti-homosexuality, and Christianity.
We do have our reasons to get worried on the Christian side that is becoming militant. It somehow got started after the 9/11 attacks, where the Bible is again used to justify the war on Iraq. Some cultish deviants of Christianity, the same ones that are so deeply condemning the LGT community, is really starting to show a sign of 'gathering of an army'. The New Testament had countlessly mentioned the wolves in sheeps clothing, the kinds of fruits that certain tree bears and a confused army going against God. Not all who call to God Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven. All the signs of the army going against God are actually some Christians themselves, may be increasing.
Last year, a show-movement called Jesus Camp was on air, presenting the training of children to become "Christian soldiers" to wage war against unbelievers. This is what I fear the most in saying that untrained minds could easily be influenced into self-imprisoned zombiedom.
Becky Fischer, a preacher for these children, went on to explain how the children are 'usable resource for the cause of Christiantiy', even went on to admit they are brainwashing children with their own brand of moral values, citing, 'studies have shown that a person's moral values in life are set in place between the ages of seven to nine years of age and will change very little after that'.
Watch the trailers of the show here:
I wonder will we Malaysians, who profess to be Christians who are Asian toned, would sink down to this shocking level of cultish militancy, feeding it to our children's minds. And as a Christian world, are we going back to the times where Christianity is still a war based religion? Now, back to our original story....
Somewhere along the way, some sections of Christianity seems to be losing touch with reality. Defining God for others is already serious. Defining our own hatred and bigotry along with defining God for others and into is utterly insane. But it seems that is what everyone is doing now.
Recycled 'myths' presented by people throughout the century, and like homosexuality today, is really getting tiringly stale. But it is still amazing when people buy into it as the truth. Even when it is proven by such hard realism and factual evidence, there is always the religious magical word called 'God says so'. When that fails, they then create their own non-peer or non-third party viewed 'sciences and evidences'. When they realise people are coming on to them liars, here comes the ultimate 'on / off' switch of Bible selection. It goes like:
Slavery? (The Bible is so obviously pro-slavery, from Genesis to Revelations)
- More than 25 verses says so, and for the future, four verses in Revelations.
- Switch: ON - Oh, you know, it is the past. The culture is different at that time and now, erm...
Earth being flat? (The Bible confirmed the earth is flat and the sun goes around it is the 'truth')
- More than 5 verses says so.
- Switch: ON -Well, the Bible never really clearly says that... even so the writers of the Bible do not know about it back in those centuries... The Bible is the inspired Word Of God you see....
Everything God asks to kill; like children, people who work Sundays (The Bible, God says so!)
- Tons of verses in the Bible asks for people to be killed because of what we define as trivial matters today!
- Switch: ON - Actually, those times are when before Christ came, so you see, it is okay...
Woman to stay silent? (The Bible wants women to be ultra submissive and covered head to toe)
- Three PASSAGES in the Bible says so, all in the New Testament, soundly and clearly.
- Switch: ON - No, actually Paul was just expressing his desires for women to be in proper conduct in church... furthermore times are different now. Anyway, my wife is important to me....
Homosexuality (The famous Christian prejudice)
- Six verses, four in Old Testament, three by Paul the woman discriminator in New Testament.
- Switch: OFF - Its an abomination. No. It is unnatural. See God says so! Look at all the heterosexual sex diseases inflicted on homosexual men with their gay lifestyle? Hah. You see those dirty men! Huh? There are lesbians? Oh ya. They are living in sin too. Whatever! God condemns homosexuality. Period! Homosexuals do not exist. Even if they exist they can change by living a celibate life! Yeah! Homosexuality is even more serious than heterosexual's adultery!
